A variety of activities are scheduled as part of the Medical Center's Employee Appreciation Week.
The celebration will commence with "UMMC Night" at Trustmark Park May 2 when the Mississippi Braves host the Tennessee Smokies. A section of the grandstand will be reserved for Medical Center employees.
Those who purchase tickets before Friday, April 26, will automatically be entered into a drawing for four skybox seats to the game. T-shirts to wear to the game are available for $10 each at Meds and Threads or at the UMMC Bookstore.
